In large bowl, add yeast to water; let stand about 5 minutes. Stir in margarine, sugar, lemon peel, milk, salt and eggs til blended. Gradually beat in 5 cups flour, then turn onto a floured board and knead, adding more flour as needed, until dough is smooth and elastic. Turn over in greased bowl, cover with plastic and rise in warm place until double in size. Punch dough down, then knead briefly on a floured board to release air. Return to greased bowl; turn dough over. Cover with plastic and chill 1-24 hours.
Wrap outside of oven proof glass or metal 2 qt mixing bowl (9 inch diameter and 4 inch deep) with foil, folding excess foil inside. Grease foil generously and invert bowl on greased baking sheet. Punch dough down and knead briefly on a floured board. Divide dough into 20 equal pieces. Working with 1 or 2 pieces at a time (keeping remaining dough covered and chilled), roll each portion into about a 3/8 inch thick rope 18-20 inches long. Pinch ends of 2 ropes together and twist. Starting at bowl rim, wrap twist around bowl, pinching ends together. Keep bowl in refrigerator to prevent uneven proofing as you roll ropes.
If you don’t quite cover entire bow, you can leave a small opening at top of hive. Extra dough can be formed into rolls: shape into 2” balls and let rise on greased baking sheet til almost doubles; bake in a 375 F oven until browned, 15-20 min.
Cover shaped dough loosely with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until puffy, 20-30 minutes. Combine egg and 1 Tbsp milk. Gently brush with egg and milk mixture. Bake in 350 F oven til well browned, 25-30 min. Let cool on bowl on rack for abt 10 min. Crumble a large piece of foil into a loose ball with same diameter as depth of bowl; set foil ball in center of rack. Gently remove bread from bowl, using a small spatula if needed to free bread; set bread over foil ball so it supports top of hive til bread is almost cool.
